Insurance unemployment remains low, job openings are at an all-time high, and organizations have record-breaking hiring goals. Even if you’re not actively job searching, it’s likely recruiters are reaching out to share potential opportunities with increasing frequency. While we’re currently in a candidate’s market, how you handle these interactions – regardless of your intent to make a move – is a direct reflection of your personal brand.
In the current business climate, the majority of insurers have closed their physical offices and their employees are working remotely. This is impacting relatively all facets of business including recruiting and hiring processes. Candidates must now be able to interview for roles and even be comfortable accepting offers without meeting hiring managers or other prospective colleagues in person.
